How CBD brings homeostasis to the human body

Central Nervous System

Facilitates the generation of new neurons and involved in neuroprotection regulation of motor activity, synaptic plasticity, and control of certain memory processing.

Immune System

Regulates the immune system by suppressing proinflammatory cytokine production.


Maintains balance by controlling food intake and metabolic functions such as energy storage, nutrient transport, and modulating insulin sensitivity.

Gastrointestinal System

Help protect GI Tract from inflammation and abnormally high gastric and enteric secretions.


Enhances stamina by regulating blood sugar and encourages runner’s high.


Plays a significant role in regulating metabolism, reproduction, and responses to stress.


Plays an important role in regulating bone mass and bone growth.

CBD for Autism

Be So Well - CBD chemical symbol

Link to Studies on Cannabidiol (CBD) specific to autism:

  1. 80% of children with autism given CBD oil saw improvements. Amazingly, they had not seen improvements when taking pharmaceutical medications.
  2. 53 children with autism given CBD oil for a median duration of 66 days showed positive results.
  3. CBD for ADHD and autism. Five out of 10 participants also had seizure disorders. The study found improvements in all but one of the 15 autistic patients taking CBD oil.

Link to Studies on Cannabidivarin (CBDV):

  1. CBDV is currently being developed into a pharmaceutical drug designed to reduce or prevent seizures by GW Pharmaceuticals.
  2. CBDV is being studied as a potential treatment for some of the most significant issues related to autism spectrum disorder, including social functioning and communication, repetitive behaviors and cognitive problems.
  3. CBDV shows promise in aiding neurobehavioral issues associated with Rett syndrome. In this 2019 preclinical study, CBDV was found to be beneficial for memory, neurological and social deficits related to Rett syndrome.
  4. CBDV was found to reduce inflammation and enhance muscle function in this 2019 study on Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
  5. CBDV shows potential in reducing nausea in this study.

CBDV for Autism

Be So Well - CBDV chemical symbol

Link to Studies on Cannabidivarin (CBDV) specific to autism:

  1. CBDV was recently shown to reduce motor impairments and cognitive deficits in animal models of Rett syndrome, a condition showing some degree of overlap with autism, raising the possibility that CBDV might have therapeutic potential in ASD.
  2. This study looked at the effects of CBDV on brain excitation and inhibition systems in adults with and without autism spectrum disorder.
  3. CBDV may normalize brain function in people with autism. An acute dose of CBDV modulated the brain chemistry in adult autistic patients toward neurotypical function.
  4. In this animal study, CBDV improved general health, sociability, motor coordination and normalized brain weight in a mouse model of Rett syndrome.
